      Was playing this guy, and this line he took here was really out of the ordinary. Plan going in was to go for a float play if the board doesn't hit most of his range since he cbet the flop with a wide range.

      After the flop and i got a check and at that point im thinking villian might not be interested in this pot, so i proceed to take the pot right there on the flop.

      On the turn, when i saw he call, i started thinking maybe he have gutshots here or some weak pocket pair. Then when he raise the turn i wasn't sure how to think about his range especially how i dont know if he is raising those draws or get there with 33. Either way i end up folding because i cant call that Turn and call a river bet. This hand is kind of troubling me trying to understand what to put the villian on here. Maybe get some tips how to play these spots, what i did wrong or if i made a bad fold.

      Hi Rello,

      Welcome to the evaluation forums.

      Preflop: I think that calling this hand against a UTG raiser is definitely a mistake even if he is a bit wider. Our hand has poor playability overall. A 3-bet or fold are much better.

      Postflop: As played I would bet the flop larger and bet the turn larger. Your bets are really small and may not achieve what they are setting out to do + they may be inducing villain to raise. Ask yourself this, does your bet look like a strong hand, at all?

      I would bet 20c+ on flop, and with that pot size on the turn I'd bet at least 40-45c.

      As a side note, when you leave a reply, please hit the advise judge to take another look button.

      Best regards,

      Bogdan
